Do you remember the last time your faith was tested? Perhaps now? Maybe you lost your job and didn’t know how you were going to make ends meet. Or how about the person that has been diagnosed with a serious health concern? Perhaps you and your spouse are currently separated and considering divorce? What about a broken family where members are not in agreement about major life plans or decisions?
Have you considered this verse from the Bible below that talks about how little faith is required to get through challenges like the ones listed above?
If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.—Matthew 17:20
But what does it mean? Mustard seeds are really, really small. Have you noticed that your faith always seems small in comparison to the problem, otherwise, it would not be a problem now would it?
Most times we miss that a small amount of faith can lead to a big result. Think of that Captain “Sully” Sullenberger when he landed that plane with the failing engines on the Hudson River. He was probably the ONLY one on that plane that had at least a small amount of faith for 155 passengers and crew. The Faith of the one seemed small in comparison to the problem and the number of other people on that flight.
When you focus on a problem that seems gigantic, remember that your God, or whatever your source, is bigger than that problem. Therefore, we are reminded that only a small amount of faith is required if you believe that your source is as big as the universe.
What does Faith look like? Faith is knowing that the doors of opportunity will open for you as you discover them. Faith is having the patience to wait for the doors and opportunities to surface. Faith is applying wisdom to make important decisions. Faith is recognizing the prompting or hunch from your true ultimate guide (T.U.G.) that is guiding you to divine ideas and divine resources to make things happen.
So what do you do when you can’t seem to muster up just a small amount of faith? What if Faith could be bottled? Well, actually, it has been.
